Looking for a holiday gift for the football fan in your life? How about a book about a part of NFL history few people know about, and how it ties into today's game? @KeyJayandMax @keyshawn #TheForgottenFirst…

Source: #Cowboys will consider providing running back Ezekiel Elliott time off to heal from the knee injury he’s been managing, including the possibility of holding him out of next Thursday night’s game in New Orleans, according to a source. IR not believed a consideration

RB Mark Ingram II officially inactive for Saints after being questionable with knee injury. Alvin Kamara previously ruled out with knee injury, meaning Saints will likely count on backup Tony Jones Jr. as main runner with possible help from Ty Montgomery, Taysom Hill among others

It impressed entire Manning family & close observers at intense focus @JalenHurts maintained during what I believe were two or three visits to @mpa_info. He always had a notepad when Peyton & Eli went into a private Saturday skull sessions w college QBs who served as counselors.…
Aaron Rodgers said he does NOT have COVID toe. He has a fractured toe. He has a FRACTURED toe. Wait til you see the video of him lifting up his bare foot to the absence of any lesions or COVID toe symptoms.

May have jumped the gun on the part of DeMarcus Lawrence potentially playing Thursday vs. the Raiders, but he will be activated off IR this week. More likely he plays vs. New Orleans after suffering a broken foot in practice in Sept. “He’s champing at the bit,” McCarthy said.
Retweeted by Chris Mortensen
Translation: The Saints didn’t want to take an automatic $8.9M dead cap hit when Hill’s current contract automatically voided, so they extend him to essentially two more years of his current pay to keep the active & dead cap spread out, while keeping a valuable player in tow.…

Look for DeMarcus Lawrence to be activated off IR this week. Mike McCarthy did not rule out the chance of Lawrence playing Thursday vs. the Raiders. Lawrence has not played since Week 1 after breaking his foot in practice.

Pete Carroll didn’t make an opening statement and cut off his postgame presser as a reporter was asking a question. First time I can remember him doing either.
Retweeted by Chris Mortensen
Well that’s a first, at least in my time covering the team. Pete Carroll after about 7 minutes just said “I’m done,” stopped fielding questions and walked off the podium.

Justin Fields is not only getting his ribs checked at hospital but also his spleen, per @JayGlazer.
Bills coach Sean McDermott said mid-week they don't make many like @Colts RB Jonathan Taylor. Colts GM Chris Ballard then was heard on team's in-season Hard Knocks show saying he believes Taylor is one of the five best offensive players in the NFL. Neither man exaggerated 😎
Now PrimeTime with Boomer & Booger on ESPN+
Miles Sanders "looked great" in practice. Eagles O-line is one of NFL's best. Jalen Hurts has shown real growth at QB. DeVonta Smith...Sneaky contender?…
#Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be activated off IR as @JamesPalmerTV reported. A source tells me he will be prepared to start tomorrow’s game against the #Cowboys at Arrowhead Stadium. Darrel Williams will also have a role. Sent from my iPhone

White expressed “a lot of disappointment” upon getting the news, per Saleh, who says White is part of the team’s future. #Jets

Not a company line: @ESPNPlus is a bargain and now this.…
The @Vikings team doctor, Christopher Larson, was praised by NFL/NFLPA medical leaders last week when G Dakota Dozier's pulsar oximeter was alarming enough to send to ER & hospital care. Dozier is vaccinated. He's better but as coach Mike Zimmer said, it was a "scary" event.
NFL teams have heightened COVID-19 awareness that it is not going away soon. Some 94 percent of players are vaccinated. NFL-NFLPA protocols have different layers. NFLPA still would prefer daily testing for all. Protocols can be tweaked as data emerges because science does change.…
I just experienced 90+ minutes of a youthful surge of joy. Some will never watch it. That’s fine but… It reminded me how @LyleMSpencer led me to the greatest rock show I ever witnessed in 70’s. Not this one but many more like it.
Block Party for @SaturdayJeff on NFL Rewind after commercial break will feature his favorite game plan of the season. You may be surprised! #ESPN

Ron Rivera didn't act like he was blinking last night when it was apparent Chase Young was lost with a torn ACL. WFT lost other DE, Montez Sweat, with a broken jaw two weeks ago. He felt like the team would be competitive as the "guys are learning" what the game is all about.
Worth reading about a much respected and admired colleague, Pam Oliver.…

More from ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown with Nick Saban, who is asked about his good friend Bill Belichick and what he sees from him at age 69.

Carson Wentz said if expectant wife Madison goes into labor today, they decided he would still play for @Colts. Wentz won't miss next week's game, either. Madison's doctors plan to induce labor Monday when Mom & Dad expect to welcome their second healthy baby girl into the world.
Quick-hit thoughts/notes around the Patriots and NFL (impressive Christian Barmore and the second-round trade-up; Mac Jones grinds through "little dry spell"; OBJ follow-up; Cam's return to Panthers; Nick Folk's accuracy; 1,000th game for Patriots etc.).

Must feel like the night before Christmas for @diannaESPN. Can’t wait to see her back in action tomorrow on Sunday #NFL Countdown …and she will be covering two teams she knows very well. #Saints #Titans

So, if you liked Meat Market, you will DEFINITELY want to read this story. I spent 14+ hours on zooms with the @seniorbowl staff last week as they evaluated prospects for their game and the 2022 NFL Draft. I learned a ton. You will too:…

Pitt QB Kenny Pickett & UNC QB Sam Howell will draw plenty of in-person eyes tonight. Some 30+ scouts are credentialed for game, including at least five GMs: Kevin Colbert (Steelers), Mike Mayock, George Paton (Broncos), Howie Roseman (Eagles) and Rick Spielman (Vikings). #ESPN
Difficult to disagree with @mspears96 when he says @Ravens QB Lamar Jackson right now is the best player in the NFL. On display again tonight vs. @Dolphins. #TheBigSwagu #SportsCenter

The Broncos-Cowboys game today draws the Bill Vinovich officiating crew. 1) This crew has called the fewest penalties of the NFL’s 17 officiating crews (by a wide margin); 2) Home teams are 5-2 with Vinovich in 2021; 3) Over the last 10 years, the Broncos are 1-6 with Vinovich.
